I’ve had a really long, tough week. Physically it has been draining. I am trying to reduce my pain medication so that I can orgasm again, but that is triggering fairly severe pain flare ups in my hip (bursitis? sciatica? who knows), which affects my sleep and my rest. I’ve also been working towards various stressful deadlines including applying for PIP for the first time, requiring huge amounts of mental energy, and I have family visiting which is both wonderful and socially exhausting. It’s no wonder then that I’ve felt very down and depleted.
Time then for me to share a photo that makes me happy. I took this a couple of weeks ago and intentionally chose a pose that I knew would highlight some of the parts of myself I feel most insecure about. Surprisingly, I loved it. I don’t know whether it is the light, or the way it felt bold to stand in this way and give no fucks, but for some reason I was able to look at this photo and feel good. This is me. And I’m ok with that.
